How Much Dried Mango Is Safe for Dogs?

A small dog can eat one or two pieces of dried mango. A large-sized dog can eat a few more bites. However, it’s best not to increase more than four pieces for big dogs.

TIP: Avoid serving your dog the same amount of dried fruit as fresh mango since dried fruit is higher in sugar.

Remember, if this is your dog’s first time eating, start with one piece only.

How to Feed Dried Mango to Dogs?

When feeding your dog dried mango, chop it up to prevent a choking hazard. Some dogs tend to swallow without chewing. If your dog is the same, serving food chopped up is a good way to avoid accidents.
